Cade's First Day of School Portraits

Last year, sweet Cade started kindergarten, and his mama Courtney asked me to take photos of his first day of school. I've had the privilege of photographing Cade every year since he was born, and it was so special to capture his big day. He's getting so big! Here are a few photos from Courtney and Cade's photo shoot.

Jana's Gruene Bridals

Jana was the very first friend I made when I joined Texas A&M's Equestrian Team back in 2003. She was a team captain and she really made me feel welcome. We became close friends throughout all those practices, competitions, Aggie football games and especially nights out dancing at the Texas Hall of Fame. She's now a pharmacist (and pretty awesome at it). When Jana asked me to be her wedding photographer I was so thrilled. We shot her bridals photos in her aunt and uncle's beyond gorgeous home and at historic Gruene Hall--a honky-tonk where every Texan worth their salt should spend a night dancing. It poured down rain throughout our shoot, but Jana was a trooper and we had a good time!

    

 

 

Baby Horse Bradshaw

I just posted photos of Diva's equine maternity shoot. Now, you can see what was in that bump! Meet Bradshaw, a precocious foal with a mind of her own! I absolutely love photographing babies--especially of the equine variety… so please sign me up if you have baby horses and you want portraits!

Diva's Equine Maternity Shoot

When my fellow Texas A&M Equestrian team teammate Kate Evans asked me to do a maternity shoot with her beloved mare Diva, I was all about it. When I found out that the HORSE was the one pregnant, I was even more excited. I began googling inspiration online and realized nobody does horse maternity shoots. I couldn't find anything! So that gave me a burst of creativity to try something new. Kate and Diva have been best buds for many years, and this foal means a lot to Kate. Capturing the mare and woman relationship was really special. I'm honored to have photographed the pair and I hope y'all enjoy the photos. I'll post pics of Diva's little baby in a future post!

Trail Ride with your Show Horse article for Horse & Rider

This was a fun article to write. I'll admit, I'm not a trail rider, mostly because my trust steed Willy was a pain outside arena walls. We tried trail riding and it just wasn't our thing. Maybe if I'd written this article sooner, I'd have had better tools to try the great outdoors! Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!
